          The Balkan Journal of Medical Genetics (BJMG) was founded in 1998, and encompasses all aspects of human genetics: cytogenetics, molecular genetics, clinical genetics, immunogenetics, oncogenetics, pharmacogenetics, population genetics, genetic screening and diagnosis of monogenic and polygenic diseases, prenatal and preimplantation genetic diagnosis, genetic counselling, advances in the treatment and prevention of genetic disease The Journal is supported by an International Editorial Board. The Journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and will publish original articles, case studies, reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays.
